I love this helmet, flat black is very cool, The visor is extra sturdy and extends down to the chin area. Great wide vision range. Airflow keeps my head cool. Love the pop down shaded visor - I don't have to wear sunglasses! Fit is a bit tight in the ears when putting it on, Hard to put on but when it's on it is a great fit. The reviews I read prior to purchasing all lauded the overall quality of the helmet and mentioned that the price is steep. It is steep but probably worth it though. You know what they say, "It only costs 90% more to go first class" and this is a first class helmet. I recommend it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Protection with the shoulder and elbow pads just makes sense - best to be safe. The jacket looks and fits well even with the pads and the promised air flow actually works pretty well on warmer days. The shoulder pads make me look a little like a football player, but safety has its trade-offs. The material is very rugged, fits snugly and looks pretty good.
Yes, I recommend this product.

First I got the Gerbings T5 gloves - great! So I got the jacket and dual controller. I do not regret it a bit! This lightweight under jacket really heats up and keeps your core and arms very warm. The temp. controllers are easy to use and I stay warm and toasty with the settings at 1/4! The price is high but the product is top notch.
Yes, I recommend this product.

My fingers are pretty sensitive to cold even with quality leather winter gloves, so a friend told me to check out Gerbings Electric gloves. I decided on the T-5s because they are a little more heavy duty. After installing the cables - not a problem - the gloves performed better than I imagined. My hands are toasty warm on these colder fall morning rides to work. They look great too, even if you don't plug them in.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I needed something to carry gloves, clothing and stuff that didn't cost an arm and a leg. This is it - inexpensive, quality materials, looks OK and does the job. I can store two pair of gloves, a couple of jackets, baseball hat, and other stuff - with a little room to spare. Even takes a small bag of groceries with no problem. Fits perfectly on my sissy bar.
Yes, I recommend this product.
